(CNN) -- Three people have been arrested in connection with 10 church fires in Alabama last month, officials said Wednesday
Good police work broke the case with the help of a set of tire tracks from a green Toyota 4Runner left at four fire scenes, Montgomery said.
U.S. Rep. Spencer Bachus, R-Alabama, said law enforcement officers spent hundreds of hours tracking the tire tread -- which was not from a commonly used tire -- and finally traced it to a tire dealer in Shelby County, Alabama.
The dealer told authorities he had recently special-ordered the tires for a customer, Bachus said, and directed them to the owner of the vehicle, apparently Cloyd. Authorities spoke with him, and he gave them information on the other two suspects, but it was not clear why Cloyd was not arrested at the time.
